Yeah might give that a go.
I could see the marks on the magneto, but not the little tag on the engine case to line up. Maybe a better torch might have helped?
Ah well, you get that.

if you look just at the end of the thread there are 2 raised marks opposite each other

im not an expert so I use that and the ziptie ....the guru typs can do it of the kicker by feel

there 50 different ways and each to there own as long as it works for you the float level is something I need to learn ..but mind you I heard there was 2 pumper carbs land today ...so if im lucky it might be a thing of the past

drop..... kick kick kick kick kick fuuuuckk

So I'd pay particular attention to finding TDC, ie valve covers off so you can be sure they're not rocking, ie wrong stroke, and someone to look in the timing hole to be sure while you're rolling the kickstart through compression.

Make sure needle is B53E & clip in middle slot. Check the throttle slide. Any sign of wear will usually result in poor idle type problems.

Make sure cables have free play.

Take alot of care to set the float valve to 18mm and you should be right.
Yer mate I think it has a stage 2. I gave up trying to find it through the hole so just ripped the cover off, much easier. No one to give me a hand is a bummer.

Carby snaps back nicely so plenty of free play in the cables.

Carby peeing issue sorted now.

Heap of sludge on the float valve. NFI where it came from but she doesn't leak anymore.

Fingers crossed that's the issue pity I didn't have any oil to put in it to try start it.

Headlight surround / mini fairing

Hi,
Does anyone have an original red and white plastic headlight surround and fairing for an XR650R they would be willing to sell?

Regards
Greg

I was gonna keep mine for roadworthy but otherwise mine is just sitting here. I will need to see what shape it's in - I could always just use the light without surround for the inspection
